    HLF Options

    are a little difficult to read for a "clue" but here is my take...

    Obviously there are those who are trying to continue to "hit the home run" with near-dated put options of 22.50...there are those who are "buying protection" with the 27.50 options in case the stock does continue to climb...

    I am definitely starting to see calls coming back into play in particular the 32.50 near term which I believe are those people believing that HLF is not going in a straight line to zero, but is indeed oversold, should be particularly interesting in that the 27.50 puts and the 32.50 calls have the most interest so one would think that the 30 strike makes sense to gravitate toward (and away from) as the MM's play their games...

    Bottom line for me: HLF continues to slowly rise at least until the analyst day presentation even in light of fiscal cliff talks. I still believe that Ackman will eventually have hurt himself by letting every other money manager know how short he is and thus, when the PANIC SELLING is over, how vulnerable he is to be squeezed.
